    I'm a little concerned about my tiny bantam frizzle. She laid her first egg last week, right around her first birthday and then 2 days later another one. Since then, every other day she spends a couple hours in the flower pot she picked out for her nest, then hops out and goes about her day, but no egg! This has been for the last 8 days. My only concern is if she is getting blocked up. She is eating, drinking and acting normal. I tried to see if I could feel some eggs stuck, but not really sure what I am looking for. Any thoughts would be appreciated. She is teeny tiny so I am a little more worried about her than I would be the other chicks, especially since she is going through the motions of laying an egg.

    First time layers are erratic. They can start laying than stop for awhile. If her behavior changes than I'd worry. Pick up one of the other hens after shes laid to compare.
